With the way that scripter can work, you may not need a "template", 
since you can place objects where you want on each page, then do this 
repetitively with a loop.

I haven't had a problem with this in 1.2 or 1.3 -- here are the commands 
I have used:
    f = createImage(xcoord, ycoord, width, height)
    loadImage(filename, f)
    setScaleImageToFrame(scaletoframe=1, proportional=1, name=f)   #if 
you want this
    setRedraw(1)   # maybe you need these at the end somewhere
    redrawAll()      # to show your images
